The Designer

  Designer Melissa Velia began designing and sewing her
Barbie dolls new wardrobes at the age of 7. "My mother taught
me to sew with a needle, some thread and tons of fabric
scraps." Melissa Velia recalls. It was then, that her life-long
passion for fashion and the industry began.

  Coming from humble beginnings, Melissa was forced to work
while she attended fashion college.  It was during that time, she
began her career in the fashion industry and landed a position
with BCBG in their corporate showroom. Later, Melissa went on
to work for several well-known brands and eventually designed
for an LA based clothing company, where her designs were
worn by celebrities such as Tyra Banks, Hilary Duff and Faith

In 2010, after 9 years in the fashion industry, Melissa Velia was
ready to branch out on her own and established her own
clothing labels. Today, she continues to evolve in the art of
fashion. Melissa Velia has become an international designer with
sales all around the world.  In the future, Melissa plans to not
only extend her clothing labels into boutiques but establish a
foundation for juvenile depression, a cause close to her heart.
